The General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has advised men of God against appropriating what belongs to God.
The revered cleric disclosed this in in the Ugandan capital, Kampala over the weekend.
Adeboye, who is on a three-day evangelical visit to the country, spoke to church leaders at Kololo Airstrip.
He told the bishops, pastors and other church leaders to stop calling “what belongs to God your own”.
“When you begin to hear a minister say; my church, my ministry, my organisation, then know there is something wrong,” Adeboye noted.
“So my first appeal to all ministers is that from this moment on, you stop calling what belongs to God your own.
“The reason why many of us are not seeing progress, we are not praying. We are taking God for granted.
“We have prepared a good sermon, we know all the theology, we know all the gymnastics, we can jump up and down, we can quote Hebrew and Greek, but there are few results. Why? Because we leave the owner of the church out. You must put Him first, through prayer.”
He assured the church leaders that God would move mightily in their midst.
Adeboye, who spoke on “I will build my church”, said,
“What God is doing in Nigeria, He will do in Uganda. I want the Almighty God, in a couple of years, to raise up ministries where millions of people will gather here in Uganda.
“After sharing the little I want to say, I want to pray a prayer of impartation that the Almighty God will deposit something in you, that will cause your Ministries to blossom.”
